about Hong's recovery.

September 14, 2021

Hong is a 15-year-old student and the oldest of four children. His father is a construction worker, while his mother is a homemaker. Hong’s favorite subjects in school are Khmer and English. When he grows up, he would like to be a physician. When he is not studying, he likes to play football, play games on his phone, and listen to music.

Since he was born, Hong has experienced intermittent ear discharge with fever, swelling, and pain in his right ear. He had surgery in 2018 at a local hospital, but unfortunately he continues to have recurrent infections. Oral medications have not helped, and his condition makes it difficult for him to attend school. He has been diagnosed with preauricular sinus, which is a small hole or cyst in front of the ear above the ear canal. This hole marks a sinus tract under the skin that frequently becomes a pus-filled abscess.

Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Hong to receive treatment. His family traveled to CSC’s care center and on September 14th, surgeons will repair the sinus. Now, his family needs help to raise $296 to fund this procedure.

Hong’s parents shared that they hope the infection will finally go away and their son will be free of pain and return to school.
